  • Petrolatum Replacement - the best natural ingredient to use

    Posted by cossci21 on February 24, 2015 at 5:32 am

    Hi Everyone,

    Looking for a petrolatum replacement to use. Looking for a replacement mainly for its texture, would love to have its barrier properties too but we shall see.
    There are a number of waxes or oils which claim to be like petrolatum or white oil but I havent had the luxury to try them.

    Any thoughts to whats good?

    Thanks

    A combination of beeswax (~5%) and castor oil (~95%) will give you a similar texture to petrolatum. The beeswax will offer some barrier properties.

    Centerchem’s Petalatum and hydrogenated vegetable oil are good alternatives.
